attention to overseas. it was less than a week ago you may recall the president of egypt, president morsy, was hailed as a hero for helping to broker that cease-fire between israel and hamas. well, days later he surprised just about everybody by awarding himself sweeping new powers back home in egypt. that triggered a wave of violence in the streets. it brought crowds and protesters back to the familiar confines of tahrir square. tonight, the president of egypt is embarking on a campaign of damage control. our report from nbc's ayman mohyeldin in cairo. >> reporter: a day of mourning across egypt, in cairo, thousands paid respects to a protester killed by police. and in alexandria, a funeral for the member of the muslim brotherhood, just fifteen years old. both were victims of the riots that broke out after president morsy gave himself sweeping new powers. it ignited a wave of protests among them, and loyal supporters fighting in the streets. the muslim brotherhood were to blame, we elected them, thought they would lift us up, but they threw us to the ground. i will never vote for them ag

egyptian president morsi for his role in brokering the cease-fire. the morrissey -- morsi government acts as a go teen for hamas which the u.n. does not negotiate. secretary of state, hillary clinton emergency peacemaking mission was after a week fighting that killed 180 palestinians and five israelis. the chief correspondent, jonathan hunt sex like at the united nations. secretary clinton made the point this is really just one step in a long process. >>jonathan: bringing a halt to the firing of rockets by hamas and by israel is obviously a crucial step but it is just a step and very much the first step. what we have seen today is an agreement for a quite literal ceasing of fire, none of the underlying issues has yet been tackled as hillary clinton made clear today in her comments. listen. >> the united states will work with partners to consolidate this progress, improve conditions for the people of gaza, provide security for the people of israel. >>jonathan: on the part of the palestinians, what they want is lifting of the economic blockade on gaza, the israels have indicated they will a
a new pharaoh. >> fury in egypt as president morsi gives himself a big, new powers. there were protests across the country. in cairo, the crowds flooded back to tahrir square, where last year they celebrated the ousting of hosni mubarak. now they say the new president has become even more of the dictator with an edict saying the courts cannot challenge him. >> he is taking more power than mubarak. >> it was only days ago that the president was basking in the world and american approval as he helped mediate the gaza ceasefire. now washington has expressed its concern about the president's latest edict. the president came out to tell his supporters that he was only acting to defend the revolution. >> i feel you. i feel the heartbeat of the people and understand what the egyptian people want. >> for president morsi, this is a huge political gamble. his supporters love it, but has he overplayed his hand? >> we need him to take the power to the revolution, not to the mubarak system. >> the government has added fuel to a weeklong demonstration and violent confrontation. these protesters are a
us live now. good morning to you. >> good morning, lynn. it's a critical day for mohamed morsi, a former leader of the muslim brotherhood which began on thursday when he issued the decree putting all his decisions effectively above the law. he said he was doing that to protect egypt's very slow move towards democracy from the judges and prosecutors mostly hand picked by hosni mubarak who were seen as sabotaging the process. the backlash was huge, was immediate, the past four days with national strikes, a sit-in on tahrir square and on going clashes between pro morsi and anti--morsi camps and the riot police. so far neither side has backed down. the pressures are growing. egypt's stock market, after losing $5 billion yesterday, has dropped another 5% today. all eyes now are on this meeting between top judges and morsi who it's hoped we'll find some kind of face-saving end to a crisis splitting egypt apart just when it should be sitting down, unified, and working on things like a new constitution. lynn, if there's any reminder of how all this might play out, there's a funeral lat
last year. but today's anger was directed at the new president, morsi. nbc's ayman mohyeldin is in tahrir square for us tonight. good evening, ayman. >> reporter: good evening, brian. hundreds of thousands of protesters were back here in tahrir square angry with president morsi for granting himself new powers. police used tear gas and rubber bullets, killing two protesters and injuring hundreds more. beyond the square, muslim brotherhood offices were attacked. the president is trying to diffuse the crisis, cancelling a rally by supporters. and promising to use his new powers in a limited way. people here don't believe him, in fact, it's only galvanized the opposition, who say president morsi is betraying the revolution becoming another mubarak, they vowed to stay here until morsi rescinds his decree. brian? >> ayman mohyeldin above tahrir square for us tonight, ayman, thanks. >>> also in the middle east today, they took an extraordinary step to investigate an old rumor. they dug up the body of yasser arafat to see if he had been poisoned, and they're conducting tissue samples
of cairo. demonstrators are angry over president mohammed morsi's decision to increase his power. morsi stripped powers from judges to overturn any of his decrees. cnn's reza sayah is in cairo this morning. we had hopeful seen the protests in the capital. are they spreading now? >> reporter: it looks like it, ramdi. a number of protesters trying to attack the offices of the muslim brotherhood. that's when they say the muslim brotherhood fought them back, and that's when you had clashes between the two sides. a number of people injured and arrested there. also, reports of demonstrations south of cairo, but the heart of these demonstrations continues to be here, tahrir square. we're going to give you a live look of what things look like right now. a few thousand people there. many of chem with their tents pitched. these are people who represent the liberal factions, the youth rights, the women's rights groups, the secularists here, and when you talk to them, they say they're determined to stay here until mr. morsi, the president, heeds their call. they're the peaceful protesters. at times
morsi playing a pivotal role here. how is egypt calling the shots in terms of the way the palestinians are reacting? >> reporter: well, on the one hand, one needs to remember when it comes to mediating the deals between the two sides israel has always played a critical and central role. what has changed now is the dynamics between egypt and israel after the arab spring, and after the fact that hosni mubarak, who was a staunch ally of the east, is no longer in power. and now the egyptians became an entity because of the fact they are led by the muslim brotherhood, became an entity here in gaza. and that changed the dynamics and it has changed the way we have been seeing things the way they played out on the ground. the dynamics of what is transpiring that led to the cease-fire, we'll have to wait and see if it holds. that is what has changed, most certainly, egypt, given the fact it is a very young government, has at least for now proven itself. in one sense it has passed that critical test. >> arwa damon, thank you very much. welcome to you. >> thanks for having me. >> can you outline
